How to Avoid Common Mistakes When Writing Your Cypress Tests | Front-End Test Fest 2022
You probably know the story. You’ve created a couple of tests, and since you are using Cypress, you’ve done this pretty quickly. Seems like nothing is stopping you, but then – failed test. It wasn’t the app, wasn’t an error, the test was… flaky? Well yes. Test design is important no matter what tool you will use, Cypress included. The good news is that Cypress has a couple of tools behind its belt that can help you out. Join me on my talk, where I’ll guide you away from the valley of antipatterns into the fields of evergreen, stable tests. We’ll talk about common mistakes in designing your test, proper use of commands and their built in retry-ability and much more. All with the goal of avoiding flakiness, removing explicit waits and keeping a smile on your face.
